Memorial Day Veteran Thank you with Color & Contour

Happy Memorial Day!  Today, we commemorate the lives of many heros who fell in the line of duty protecting our country from harm and ensuring our freedoms.  Thank you...we will never forget you!

Color Contour-Thanks Memorial Day CloseFlat-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04430

The Color & Contour stamp set with coordinating Scalloped Contours Dies sets the tone for this Red, White & Blue Thank You in recognition of our wonderful veteran heros. I was inspired from a card found in our new Annual catalog focusing on our Blending Brushes to add gradients of color.

After die cutting the Scalloped Contour frame, I used a scrap piece of paper to create my gradient layers with a Blending Brush and Real Red ink.  A sheet of small Grid paper helped me ensure my lines would be straight across and not "kitty-whompus".  The flower image was inked with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink with the speckles stamped as a second rendition with Misty Moonlight ink.

There's a new pack of paper that is sooo pretty!  Its the Gold & Rose Metallic 6" x 6" Specialty paper and I couldn't pass up adding it to the Misty Moonlight card base.  It also stands as a scalloped circle matte behind the clear embossed sentiment on Vellum cardstock.  Just the right amount of bling.  The coloring options are endless to create something for any occasion.

I demonstrated this card and Blending Brushes gradient technique during my Sunday Stampin' Dreams online card class yesterday.  You can catch the replay here

 

Enjoy!!

Creative Inking Blog Hop — New Catalog Must Have Spiral Dye

Hello stampers and crafty friends!  Today, our wonderful Creative Inking designers have created a bundle of projects featuring our favorites that are a "Must Have" from the new Annual catalog.  You may be starting from here at my blog, Lori Mueller - Stampin' Dreams, or you may have come here from the very talented BJ Peters' blog. Please be sure to click the 'Next' button (found below) to move along the Creative Inking blog hop to see all the beautiful and amazing projects.

The minute I came across the Spiral Dye Background stamp in the new catalog, I knew I just had to have it!  Who can resist receiving something tie-dyed?  But even better...who can resist creating cards and other projects using this stamp?  The color combinations are endless!

CreativeInkingHop-Spiral Dye Amazing Front-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04400
For this super fun card, I used a couple of the new 2021-2023 In Colors...Pale Papaya and Soft Succulent.  I just love how soft it looks all spread across the Very Vanilla card base.  I thought about adding some texture to the Soft Succulent layer, but really wanted the stamped Spiral Dye to be the focal point.  It was super easy to create a 2-color tie-dye result.  I used my Stamparatus as a guide of placement for the first color stamped.  Then, flip the Very Vanilla layer 180 degrees, placing it in the exact same spot.  Remember to clean your stamp before adding new ink color to stamp the 2nd time.  Comes out perfect every time!

The sentiment comes from the Color & Contour stamp set and was inked with Soft Succulent and stamped onto Very Vanilla cardstock before cutting out with the Tailor Made Tags Dies set.  I love that the dies set comes with a die that will cut out reinforcement pieces (like the old days for page dividers in a 3-ring binder) allowing you to add a coordinating color from your overall creation.

CreativeInkingHop-Spiral Dye Amazing RT-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04412

To add a little more balance to the two colors, I tied some of the new Pale Papaya 3/8" Open Weave Ribbon to the end of the Tailor Made Tags die cut.  Then added the sentiment layer to the front of the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

If you enjoyed this project, I'd love to have you join me each Sunday afternoon at 2:30P (CST) for my Sunday Stampin' Dreams facebook Live demonstrations.  To make sure you receive notifications when I post announcements, events, and creations using all my favorite Stampin' Up! products, click the "Like" and "Follow"buttons on my business page Lori Dreams Stampin'.

OSAT Blog Hop — Thank You Color & Contour Mash Up

Good morning stampers and paper crafters!  Welcome to our May One Stamp At a Time (OSAT) Design Team Blog Hop.  My name is Lori Mueller (stampindreams.com) and I'm excited for your visit.  This may be your first stop on the hop, or you may have hopped over here from the previous OSAT designer. Either way, in order to view all of the blog participants sharing their wonderful project(s), click on the next person in line within the list of blogger's posted at the end.  We've got some amazing projects to share with you!

OSAT2020HeaderOur May theme is "Mash Up", which is to use products that carried over from the last catalog with products in the new annual catalog.  Let me introduce you to my Color & Contour card.  This set comes from the new Annual catalog and has a coordinating Scalloped Contours Dies set.  I'm excited to share with you how I how put this beauty together.

OSATHop-Color Contour Thank You-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04388


The Cinnamon Cider card base and color palette of Highland Heather, Daffodil Delight, Blushing Bride and Petal Pink are all carry-over from the last catalog.  The flower images, sentiment and gorgeous Hand-Penned Designer Series paper made their debut in the new 2021 Annual catalog.  I covered the front of the cardbase with a multitude of 2nd rendition stamping using the splatter image in the Color & Contour stamp set.  This set includes several 2-step stamping images, which makes it easy to add color if you don't have any of the other means of coloring tools (Watercolor Pencils, Water Brushes, Stampin' Blends, etc.).  Because I love layers and dimension, I added some new Pale Papaya & White 1/2" Ribbon behind the Highland Heather Scalloped Contours die.  The 2-step flowers were arranged in a bouquet, of sorts on the die.

The lovely sentiment was inked with Cinnamon Cider and die cut with a Layering Circle Die; then, set in place with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I have to tell you, while creating this card, I was smelling the wonderful fragrance from some cut fresh flowers from my Uncles garden!  So beautiful!
